Hi, this is a Ruby mailing list (the language Rails was written in), not a
Rails mailing list. You should try a Rails list, you will get much better
help. Especially considering the code you posted looks like JavaScript, not
Ruby.

A few things, though:

1. If you are certain you've done everything correctly, you might check the
errata to see if something in the book isn't right:
http://www.pragprog.com/titles/rails3/errata

2. You said "when I press on the add to cart button I get an error message.
a real ugly one." but you haven't given any information about the error
message. These exist to let you know something is wrong, and where it went
wrong so that you know where to go start troubleshooting. This would be good
information to include, it gives people (and you) an idea where it went
wrong.
